Event Details

This presentation will introduce the fascinating world of turtles and turtle science.  Did you know that the sex of some species is determined at a pivotal point during egg incubation, or that turtles are the most endangered group of animals on earth?  How about the fact that turtles can talk and are actually more social than we realized?  Come learn about their diversity, conservation, and the latest research findings.  Live animals and bioartifacts will be included.  This presentation is free and family-oriented.
